Teaching my children about Dependence on God. Reminders are very important.

God revealed His Truth to me a while ago and I’m grateful to teach them to my children.
I don’t want to hide these Truths of God for fear they will live or battle in a state of independent delusion.

Here’s what I remind my kids of often.
You didn’t create yourself.
You didn’t decide what family God wanted to make you born into.
These are facts that you can’t deny nor forget and He didn’t ask you beforehand if you were okay with His decision.
Why did He decide to put you in a family that would teach you about Him? He Chose.
Not everyone gets this opportunity as a child to be raised to know Him and Love Him.
You did not seek God as a child, God Loved You first (Grace) and your little heart believed (Faith). Because you believe, it is counted to you as Righteousness. Faith.

This brings blessed assurance to my mommy heart and soul that you are indeed His. So because you are awakened In His Grace, this means that you are His child. This also means that He disciplines those He loves. So if you forget God, choose to run from His grace poured out onto you, it will not go well for you because The Spirit resides in you and He always wins. He must bring you to a place of brokenness over your sin (and this is actually a Constant Very Well State for the believer). It will go well according to God because He is The Master at interceding for the saints according to The Will of God. He is The Master Orchestrator at working all things together for His Glory and your good.

Remember Son and Daughter Whose You are and Delight In Him Who Gave You Life. Everything and Everyone else is second.

He will be the sure foundation for your times, a storehouse of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge. The fear of the LORD is Zion’s treasure. Isaiah 33:6

Hallelujah! Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in His commandments. Psalm 112:1

Proverbs 3
My son, do not forget my law,
But let your heart keep my commands;
For length of days and long life
And peace they will add to you.
Let not mercy and truth forsake you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart,
And so find favor and high esteem
In the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
It will be health to your flesh,
And strength to your bones.
Honor the Lord with your possessions,
And with the firstfruits of all your increase;
So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.
My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor detest His correction;
For whom the Lord loves He corrects,
Just as a father the son in whom he delights.
Happy is the man who finds wisdom,
And the man who gains understanding;
For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver,
And her gain than fine gold.
She is more precious than rubies,
And all the things you may desire cannot compare with her.
Length of days is in her right hand,
In her left hand riches and honor.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
And all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her,
And happy are all who retain her.
The Lord by wisdom founded the earth;
By understanding He established the heavens;
By His knowledge the depths were broken up,
And clouds drop down the dew.
My son, let them not depart from your eyes—
Keep sound wisdom and discretion;
So they will be life to your soul
And grace to your neck.
Then you will walk safely in your way,
And your foot will not stumble.
When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet.
Do not be afraid of sudden terror,
Nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes;
For the Lord will be your confidence,
And will keep your foot from being caught.
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,
When it is in the power of your hand to do so.
Do not say to your neighbor,
“Go, and come back,
And tomorrow I will give it,”
When you have it with you.
Do not devise evil against your neighbor,
For he dwells by you for safety’s sake.
Do not strive with a man without cause,
If he has done you no harm.
Do not envy the oppressor,
And choose none of his ways;
For the perverse person is an abomination to the Lord,
But His secret counsel is with the upright.
The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked,
But He blesses the home of the just.
Surely He scorns the scornful,
But gives grace to the humble.
The wise shall inherit glory,
But shame shall be the legacy of fools.

In Jesus we Live and Move and Have our Being.
